Craftsmen's Fair

Mount Sunapee is the perfect 4 season mountain. For most skiers and boarders it is not too big and not too small. It has a great balance of easy, intermediate and expert runs, and those just learning to ski will really appreciate the separate South Peak learning area.

The terrain park is awesome including a 300-foot half pipe, quarter pipe, 5 boxes, 2 rails, and 6 jumps. Check out the great video from the terrain park below.

There are two base lodges and a summit lodge. The Sunapee lodge at the base of the high-speed quad lift has a cafeteria and a full-service snow sports shop. They also have a private base lodge area called the Hearthstone Room available by reservation. The Spruce Lodge has a cafeteria downstairs and upstairs is the Goosefeathers Pub featuring a bar, luncheon food with waitress service, and après-ski entertainment on weekends.

If the snowsports shop in the base lodge does not have what you need just head up the road to the entrance of the state park to Bob Skinner's Ski Shop. They have just about everything and are equipped to handle any kind of equipment repair. I had a problem with a new pair of boots I had bought elsewhere. My oddly shaped feet were having a lot of discomfort, but the folks at Skinner's were able to expertly reshape my boot liners for a perfect fit!

Mount Sunapee Hiking Trails

If you want to take the perfect day hike there are three hiking trails that lead from the base to the summit of Mount Sunapee. The Province Trail runs up the north side, the Newbury Trail up the northeast slope and the Andrew Brook Trail runs up the southeast slope. A free map of the Mount Sunapee State Park hiking trails is available from Guest Services at the base lodge.

The Province Trail leads from the base of the Mount Sunapee ski area to the summit of Sunapee Mountain, and receives heavy use in the summer months. Almost all of the trail is part of the Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway. The trail head is at the end of Old Province Road in Goshen. Province Trail
The Newbury Trail leads from near the shore of Lake Sunapee to Lake Solitude on Sunapee Mountain. Lack of parking makes this trail less desirable for large groups during the busy summer season. The trail has become part of the Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway Trail, and is marked with its trapezoidal white blazes in addition to earlier orange blazes. The Newbury Trail, Mt. Sunapee
The Andrew Brook Trail leads from Mountain Road in Newbury to Lake Solitude high on the flank of Sunapee Mountain. It also provides access to the 75-mile loop Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway Trail and the 50-mile Monadnock Sunapee Greenway Trail. There are 3 crossings of Andrew Brook and several of side brooks, only some of which are bridged. The Andrew Brook Trail , Mt. Sunapee
